Johannesburg - Thulani Serero is back in
the Bafana Bafana mix after the Ajax Amsterdam play-maker was recalled by Shakes
Mashaba for South Africa's back-to-back 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers
against Congo-Brazzaville in October.
Serero missed out on
selection in September as Bafana began their qualification campaign with a 3-0
win over Sudan in Khartoum, before they were held by defending champions,
Nigeria, in Cape Town five days later.
Joining Serero in the squad
is Orlando Pirates striker Kermit Erasmus, who also missed the last squad.
Serero was part of former
coach Gordon Igesund's last two games against Australia and New Zealand, but
missed Mashaba's first squad.
Erasmus, meanwhile, last
played for Bafana in November 2013 in an international friendly against
Swaziland. He has missed seven national team games since then.
